Our Weekend..

So it's Sunday night - why do you get here so quickly?? I could easily do with another 1-2 days of weekend before I feel up to facing the week ahead again.

The weekend was good, Saturday was spent with the kids playing at home, washing, grocery shopping and generally pottering about.  The in laws paid a visit, to which I ask.. why is it, kids always go feral when you have company over? All day they played good as gold, but approx 30 seconds before Grandma & Grandad got here, they started to bicker and fight & generally turn into little monsters.. Within 30 seconds of them leaving, calm was once again restored... grrrr... The same behaviour emerges when the phone rings.. Jekyll and Hyde!

Today although we woke up to dreary showers we decided to take a drive to Currumbin Sanctuary on the Gold Coast as they were having May Mates Rates and admission was only $5 per person, with all proceeds going towards their hospital foundation.  The weather had mostly fined up when we got there and we had a great look around at all the animals and attractions.. the kids favourite were definitely the playground, flying fox and digging for fossils and I must admit I was quite impressed by the playground and loved the burrow like tunnels they had set up for the kids to play in..  Unfortunately by about 3pm it started to rain quite heavily and we had to cut our visit short, which was a bit of a bummer as we'd missed the lorikeet feeding and most of the shows. But all in all, it was a great day. 

A Koala doing what we should all be doing on a lazy Sunday..

Enjoying the Playground..

Flying fox fun..
